A - looks just fine

(A) significant increases in housing integration, which, in turn, reduces
- looks good

(B) significant integration increases in housing, which, in turn, reduces
"significant " is misplaced.

(C) increase housing integration significantly, which, in turn, reduces
"significantly" is misplaced - it should be modifying "increase" not "housing integration"

(D) increase housing integration significantly, in turn reducing
- same reason as for "C"

(E) significantly increase housing integration, which, in turn, reduce
"significantly" here is an adverb - but in the sentence if you take out the modifiers you can see it does not fit in

School integration plans(....)have contributed(...)significantly increase ...

Secondly, "significantly increase housing integration" will need a singular verb "reduces"

(E) i think is not good enuff and the reason is well explained by 5elements.

Rest all can be easily eliminated.

"which" clearly refers to "housing integration" because the verb of the subject "which" is reduces, singular and which is also singular and increases is not. so "which", a singular, cannot refer to "incrases", plural.

A is good.
